After having them all in hand, I can confidently say that Messer's valk is definitely the ugliest in battroid. It also doesn't look like it fits in with the rest of the group's style.

@Lolicon or anyone who has or will be getting their VF-31E.  Have you been able to get all the radome panels/parts to line up flat when collapse extendable parts in?  I have tried get everything to line up flat, looked at all the pics posted in the reviews and it doesn't look like everything line up flat. :huh:

My radome was a big floppy mess. I got pretty close to a clean look, but only from the right angle. If I touch it, it pops out out place again. I kinda wish they would have made the radome not collapsible. Maybe just a solid open version and a collapsed version that you could switch out.

Nope, I don't think it's possible to get everything perfectly lined up and flat so it's indistinguishable from a non-folding radome. And parts will move out of place at the slightest touch. :unknw:

@LoliconI kept messing with it for 20 min and  that photo is the best I could do ti get it "lined up".  My radome hold fairly well, I have bumped it slightly and holds

Thank you for the info @Ipsquitch, the radome on mine hold fairly well, it doesn't pop out of place too often.

Judging from the box cover, I wonder if it's not even supposed to lock together into a solid disc?  I'd have to check the series to see if that's how it always was.

Yeah, those are the Kotobukiya LED swords. I had to modify them for Messer and Chuck. 

Think I prefer this lineup more.

There are tabs for it to be fully closed. It doesn't line up particularly well in either opened or closed state though. 

Edit: nevermind, I was thinking of the main tabs (don't have it's in front of me at the moment).

Maybe we'll get a "full non-foldable" radome with his FP's eventually --Kinda like the Drakken Shield everyone threw a hissy fit about not having with the original release...

Patience my young Padawan.... Give it at least two business days and Amiami will give you the shipping invoice with the tracking number.

Still no news from NY.

My proxy came through on Monday. Will likely leave it at the warehouse until next month.

Looks like someone has gotten Chuck from Manda at 22k yen (unopened, package damaged)

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1116620569&ref=list&keyword=マクロス&lang=en

It is still available from AJ for 22K + 1.2K DHL shipping.

How hard is it to change LED colors?   Would like a magenta/purple one for Mirage.  (and Revan!)    What exact shape/size is used?   And super-detailed soldering, or just "basic" skills?

I suppose that Orange is more Yellowish than the YF-25 right?

Not too much, fortunately. It's actually super easy! Barely an inconvenience.

The Kotobukiya LED swords come with clear uncolored blades in addition to whichever color you bought. So I just used the spare set to paint yellow ones for Chuck and purple for Messer.

The LED handles used by Kotobukiya are the Milight LEDs. Size 327 is the size used by Kotobukiya,

 I just swapped them out: yellow for Chuck, white for Messer, as they don't sell a purple LED.

See above. It'll probably way easier to use a white LED handle and paint the blade to whatever color you like. Those LEDs are tiny and secured pretty well. I've never tried to open any of them up. They'll must likely just break if you try to open it to remove the LED.

Way more yellow tint to the orange than the straight up orange of the VF-1D or YF-25.

You mean this @Graham (or do you want another view)? I believe that hacchaka has it as well. * This was from "nov.chan's" website before it disappeared in vaporware. *

Edit: Here's hacchaka's.
